Summary

Private clinic for city of Ft. Collins adaptive program

Description

Description of Program:

Participants meet with the City of Fort Collins CTRS and Adaptive Adventures staff individually to assess safety, kayaking abilities, endurance level, and proper fitting of equipment (kayak and paddle).  Small group treatment sessions will include discussions on benefits of exercise, motivational techniques (i.e. charting progress in time, distance and/or terrain), training and practice on kayaking skills, water etiquette, kayaking safety and dealing with emergencies. Kayaking or paddle board groups will consist of learning about and engaging in kayaking opportunities in the home communities. The goal of the kayaking program is for each participant to be at a functionally independent level for participation in community kayaking.

  1. Physical: improved/maintained overall fitness, balance, coordination, gross motor function, visual spatial skills, strength, endurance, coordination, range of motion
